Competence aims after mathematics 1T

  • formulate and solve problems through the use of computational thinking, different problem solving strategies, digital tools and programming
  • read and understand mathematical proofs and explore and develop proofs in relevant mathematical topics
  • identify variable quantities in different contexts, create formulas and explore these using digital tools
  • explore strategies for solving equations, systems of equations and inequalities, and argue for one’s thought processes
  • explain the difference between an identity, an equation, an algebraic expression and a function
  • explore relationships between quadratic equations, quadratic inequalities, quadratic functions and the binomial formulas, and use these relationships in problem solving
  • model situations related to different topics, discuss, present and explain the results and argue the validity of the models
  • read, extract and evaluate mathematics in relevant texts on various topics and present relevant calculations and analyses of the results
  • explore and describe the properties of polynomial functions, rational functions, exponential functions and power functions
  • use average and instantaneous growth rates in concrete examples and account for the derivative
  • explain polynomial division and use it to rewrite algebraic expressions, discuss functions and solve equations and inequalities
  • explain the definitions of sine, cosine and tangent and use trigonometry to calculate the length, angles and area of arbitrary triangles
  • justify the area, sine and cosine rules
  • use trigonometry to analyse and solve complex theoretical and practical problems involving length, angles and area
